Is the Giant XTC SX worth it over the SE?`

Basically the SX has full lock out in the front suspension where the SE does not, but the difference is 200....granted there are differences in other parts too but that is one feature i like to have but with no experience with front sus bikes i like to ask people here.

Have you considered a 'Merlin Malt 1' or 'Malt 2'
I have one and for the money the spec is Awesome. When I bought mine I was looking at getting a 'giant' coz a mate had one and some reviews.
I was looking at spending around 500 but after reading through a few forums and magazines I opted for the malt-1. Best decision I ever made.
